    Notes 
    • HISTORY OF TENNESSEE CANNON Co., TN

      The country now embraced in Cannon County was settled as early as 1807 and 1809, though it then belonged to several other counties in part. The early settlers were chiefly North Carolinians, who, however, came here from East Tennessee, to which section they had previously immigrated in quest of homes, but pushed on over the mountains as Middle Tennessee opened up for settlement. Among the settlers living here in 1836, when Cannon County was organized, were Henry D. McBroom, John Wood, James and Edmond Taylor, Wm. Hollis, Noel Lilly, Isham Cherry, Alexander Hill, Phillip Rough, Phillip Hoas, Henry Ford, Benjamin Allen, Usibid Stone, George St. John, Wm. Mears, Melchesedec Self, Joseph Harrison, Samuel Lewis, Wm. Middleton, James and John Barkley, Richard Vincent, Alexander Orr, Wm. McFerrin, Calvin Carlee, Jackson Wherry, Daniel Travis, Arthur Warren, Phillip Mouser, Joshua Barton, George Petty, Benjamin Arant, L.S. Gilliam, Reuben Evans.


      Letter of Naola Pennington, 1968, Copy from Washington Historical Society
      George St. John was born about 1760-1770 in VA.(established from Census records
      and died about 1855 in Cannon County, TN. He lived at one time in Campbell
      County, Va. and later in Washington County, Va. He bought land in middle TN in
      1818 and moved there where he is buried in a family graveyard on his farm,
      which is still owned by a descendant-exact dates are unknown as there was
      either no tombstone or it is no longer visible. His land sold to administer
      his estate on April 3, 1855 in Cannon County, TN. Mentioned in this record are
      John St. John, Berry St. John, Arthur St. John, Thomas St. John, William St.
      John and Martin St. John and "other children of George"--others not named.
      Tradition has been that one - either the father or the grandfather of George -
      was buried near Richmond, Va.

      1. Isaac "Ike" St. John

      L. Edward St. John findagrave memorial 23617491 states George St. John was the son of Isaac "Ike" St. John, grandson of William St. John, son of Thomas St. John, the immigrant.

      2. William St. John of Essex, VA

      ttp://archiver.rootsweb.ancestry.com/th/read/STJOHN/2006-03/1141881664
      From: "James McCulloch"
      Subject: Mary "Polly" St. John 1795
      Date: Thu, 9 Mar 2006 00:21:04 -0500
      George St. John, Sr. names his father as William and later in Cannon County, Tennessee he says he was born in Essex County, VA. I feel my Mary St. John belonged to the same family. She was Quaker and was married in a Quaker ceremony in Campbell County, VA in July, 1795. When she married, George St. John, Jr. was a witness and when George St. John, Sr. married, her husband, John Wynne was a witness. Also, later she had her first two male children, twins, John Berry and Thomas. I know the Wynne family well and these are two names that are not found in the Wynne family, but they are found in the St. John family from Essex County. At this point I want to look at tax lists from the late 1700s. I know that Mary was born in Campbell County, perhaps if I list all the St. John heads of households there I can get a clue from that even if it is then by eliminating households.
